Both CBS and NBC are set to premiere comedies about local news personalities this fall.

CBS has picked up “The Millers,” starring Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, “a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles’ life until his parents’ marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans.” The show also stars Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges as Nathan’s parents.

CBS will air “The Millers” Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. beginning this fall. NBC’s new comedy about a local news anchor, “The Michael J. Fox Show,” will air Thursdays at 9:30 p.m.
